Faraj Suleiman

Faraj Suleiman is a Palestinian composer and pianist, strongly influenced by Arabic/Eastern melodies and rhythms. He often incorporates those scales and modalities in his compositions. Inspired equally by Bach, Stravinsky and Piazzola as well as by Western rock, jazz and Arab-Egyptian pop music, the Palestinian composer and pianist creates his very own captivating fusion of Eastern-Western sounds. As an Arab musician trained in classical music, he constantly searches for new forms of expression to equally appeal to his ‘Eastern’ and ‘Western’ listeners.

To date, Faraj Suleiman composed several albums which have placed the ‘Eastern’ piano in the centre of the composition, ranging from solo piano compositions to quartets, quintets, arrangements for choir and full orchestras. In the last years, he released a number of albums, created the songs album for children Faheem and also composed music for theatre and film, such as the multiple award- winning film by Ameen Nayfeh 200 meters. In addition, he has performed at several festivals, such as Womex, EnjoyJazz, Montreux Jazz Festival and the Jazzahead in London.
